Methodology

I offer individual teaching plans based on the needs of the student. Learning outcomes include: How to interpret source material, proper academic writing techniques, how to conduct research, editing and proofreading skills, constructing a compelling thesis, and meeting assignment deadlines.

Background

I am a graduate student in Philosophy with a diverse background in the arts. As a recent graduate of a Combined Honours program in Humanities and Philosophy, I have a broad knowledge base in the liberal arts, with particular expertise in writing, editing, and research, to pass on to new academics and other people interested in the liberal arts. As an undergraduate student my work was recognized with three publications and numerous awards and distinctions. Whatever your needs, I am here to help.
